Who doesn't love chocolate and cream cheese and cookies?
Okay, if you just answered with "not me" then I don't think we can be friends.
I think you may be inflicted with the same disease Sue suffers from.
I call it "craziness".
These cookies not only have a ridiculous amount of deliciousness....they are so easy. You get to cheat by using store bought crescent rolls.
I won't tell if you won't.
Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies
(from Cookies and Cups)
1 can seamless crescent rolls
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, room temp
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
Unroll the crescent roll. Stretch out the dough into a rectangle. (If you can't find the seamless crescent dough then just make sure you pinch the seams together well.)
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the crescent dough - leave a gap at the edge of about 1/2 inch.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Roll the crescent roll up tightly and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Once chilled - preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Slice the cookie log into about 1/4 inch slices. Bake on prepared sheet for 10 - 15 minutes, until golden brown.
Let cool on sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
I don't usually cheat when it comes to cookies but once I saw these I had to try them.
You should too.
They are totally worth it.
No effort and you get to eat cookies.
I don't see a problem with that, do you?
OH! P.S. - These are sooooo much better warm with the chocolate chips all melty. Don't be afraid to microwave them for 5 seconds to warm them up.
